    The Charm Offensive will sweep you off your feet.” (PopSugar)

    ​​​​In this witty and heartwarming romantic comedy — reminiscent of Red, White & Royal Blue and One to Watch — an awkward tech wunderkind on a reality dating show goes off-script when sparks fly with his producer.

    Dev Deshpande has always believed in fairy tales. So it’s no wonder then that he’s spent his career crafting them on the long-running reality dating show Ever After. As the most successful producer in the franchise’s history, Dev always scripts the perfect love story for his contestants, even as his own love life crashes and burns. But then the show casts disgraced tech wunderkind Charlie Winshaw as its star.

    Charlie is far from the romantic Prince Charming Ever After expects. He doesn’t believe in true love, and only agreed to the show as a last-ditch effort to rehabilitate his image. In front of the cameras, he’s a stiff, anxious mess with no idea how to date 20 women on national television. Behind the scenes, he’s cold, awkward, and emotionally closed-off.

    As Dev fights to get Charlie to connect with the contestants on a whirlwind, worldwide tour, they begin to open up to each other, and Charlie realizes he has better chemistry with Dev than with any of his female co-stars. But even reality TV has a script, and in order to find to happily ever after, they’ll have to reconsider whose love story gets told.

    Tiresome

    I had to break off listening to this title about 5 hours in, as it just got so tedious! More angst, more awkwardness, more anxiety, more "it could never work... it must never happen again..."
    Oh, get on with it!
    A fluffy little rom-com story like this could have been told just as satisfactorily without dragging on for TEN HOURS. Take a pass on this one and re-listen to one of your other favorite rom-coms instead.

    Wow, that was EXCELLENT

    I wasn't sure what to expect but I thoroughly enjoyed this lovely, romantic, modern story. Terrific writing, well-developed, charming characters, great humor, lots of twists and turns, lovely slow burn, and never a dull moment. And, most importantly, representation, queerness and mental health are front and center -- a complete part of the story for many of the characters. It was wonderful to see these topics dealt with so smartly, accurately and sensitively. I especially enjoyed the delicate nuances and complexities of each character - mental struggles, sexuality and identity aren't just one dimensional and the author did an amazing job with these topics. Yes, the story is a bit formulaic but this is what you want in a modern love story: romance tropes cleverly turned on their heads. I don't think I've enjoyed an MM romance this much in a while. Highly recommend.

    My new favorite romance

    The Charm Offensive follows the star of a reality dating show (*cough* The Bachelor) falling in love with a producer behind the scenes, but it’s so much more. It’s an LGBTQIA+ love story with an earnest exploration of mental health, and it doesn’t shy away from the hard parts… but that makes the sweet parts that much sweeter. I loved the audiobook, the actors did an amazing job bringing Dev and Charlie to life. This is a story that sticks with you and raises the bar for what contemporary romance stories can be.

    This book was everything!!!

    It was so brilliant and like able. The characters felt very three dimensional. They weren’t perfect. They were both neurodivergent and it was beautiful handled. I laughed with them and got so caught up in their story I didn’t want it to end. This MM romance has real substance. In the write up it mentions red white and royal blue and I agree that this story has a similar weight and depth to it. It’s also very light on sexual detail so if you love MM but don’t want something to explicit this is for you. And if you love explicit. You won’t feel cheated by this book.

    Laugh out loud funny

    Well, that was a treat. I listened to the audio version of this book and it was terrific. The author and all 3 narrators were new to me and none of them let me down. The happy-ever-after was not handled the way I expected it to be and I have to admit I was a little unsure of where it was going (I may have even shed a tear or two) but it was even better than I hoped. Those darn authors and their twisty turns. ;) That's not to say that this is a sad story. I laughed so hard and so often I thought I might have to use one of the dog's training pads. (I'm not going to explain that if you don't get it). If the ratings are anything to go by I'm sure that reading the book is great but if you like listening to audiobooks then that's the way I suggest you go.

    Soooo cute!

    Such a sweet story. It’s everything you hope actually happens on those dating shows. I loved Dev and Charlie.

    But the narrator! Why did he mispronounce Dev’s name. It bugged me throughout the entire book.

    ACE REP ACE REP ACE REP

    Sorry, this is all I can think about. We got goddamn great and wonderful asexual representation in this book which looked so much like the next 08/15 gay romcom.
    But we also got mental illnesses with their dirty parts, we got enbys and we got questioning and so so so much.
    I love to see diversity shown like this. Bright and open and proud. I want a lot of books to be like this one. So honest and heartfelt and beautiful.
    And fuck yeah gimme all that ace rep. It makes me so friggin happy.
